I am looking for a good website CMS framework. We currently develop webapps using Hibernate/Webwork/Sitemesh. This works great for an individual app, but we are looking for a solution where we can deploy different �modules� (forums, wiki, etc.) I came across java Portlets (JSR 168) and it looks like it might just work. I am just concerned about how complicated implementing portlets can be. Is there a different solution besides portlets that allows for multiple webapps to be aggregated under one master webapp? Or is this what portlets were designed for?

Java Portets (jsr168) are designed to server that purpose. Which is to integrate different modules together. You dont have to rewrite your previous modules into portlets if you dont want to, there is a portlet bridge which you can use to integrate existing applications. I dont remeber the link now but if you need let me know and I will look it up.

As for the cms, Liferay includes a very good cms built in addition to its portal features.

For CMS it must be either Vignette or Interwoven(if you have money to spare and need some level of support)
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
